I try to be involved in the local community.  I’m a member of the board of directors of The Global Switchboard and of the steering committee of Pittsburgh 350.org.  I also work with the Pittsburgh Human Rights City Alliance and many of its partner organizations.

I’m a subscriber to and supporter of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, which is one of the finest orchestras the world (check out this performance of Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 in Berlin), as well as the Pittsburgh Opera and Quantum Theater.

Here are some other organizations (our fantastic restaurants excluded) that help to make my life in Pittsburgh wonderful:
